Operating system: linux
Description: Documentation error for pg_dump
The last sentence of the penultimate paragraph in the Description for
pg_dump in the Documentation states :-
"The tar format (-Ft) is not compressed and it is not possible to reorder
data when loading, but it is otherwise quite flexible; moreover, it can be
manipulated with standard Unix tools such as tar."
and the description of the tar format option states :-
Output a tar archive suitable for input into pg_restore. Using this archive
format allows reordering and/or exclusion of database objects at the time
the database is restored. It is also possible to limit which data is
reloaded at restore time. "
The information on reordering at restore time is surely completely
contradictory between the two. The 8.4 documentation is the same.
